About The Island Octopus

Support our journey as we work to open a physical storefront!

The Island Octopus LLC™ was founded in 2021 by husband-wife team Matt and Melissa Gindling. Our store offers whimsical critters, beachy art, coloring books, apparel, and handcrafted incense. We started this project with the intent of giving our creations a home, while offering clients, fans, and friends an inside-look into the creative process.

This artistic journey began in St. Louis, Missouri in 2011. Throughout the past 10 years, we've both enjoyed creating artwork, books, incense, and other unique products. The artwork you see here was created by Matt & Melissa.

While we currently offer our products online, we have plans to open a retail space in 2021! In addition to continuing our online sales, a physical location will allow us to focus on our artistic endeavors, and provide a larger studio space to create and display new artwork for you. We have endless ideas for new designs, including apparel, tropical flora & fauna-themed artwork, incense blends, and more. Join us as we share our love of the natural world and artwork!

You can directly support our growth by becoming a Patreon. Donations and the "general support" tiers on Patreon will go directly towards our opening expenses, relocation expenses, and new products for the shop. Thank you for your support!
